“I go home and I wash my face and I put on my sweatpants and I lay down on the bed and I say, ‘oh, please rub my feet,’ and you know, he says, ‘no, you rub my feet.’ So, you know, behind the curtain, I’m just like everybody else. … I didn’t choose to, you know, I didn’t, like, write down on a piece of paper I’m now going to have a relationship with a younger man. That’s just what happened. You see, that’s the romantic in me. I just met someone that I cared for, and this happened to be his age.”
Well, I can’t get behind Madonna being “just like everybody else.” Girl, please, you are an icon. But it’s good to know that Madonna has to sweet talk her boyfriend, Brahim Zaibat, into rubbing her feet just like the rest of us. I have to say it’s cool that she’s not just able to boss him around. Props to her 24-year-old boo for saying, “No, you rub my feet.” Of course, if Madonna told me to rub her feet, I would just shut up and do it. [ONTD]
“By the way, I enjoyed my first marriage. It’s definitely not something I regret. The experience was ultimately very positive. I love the kids that came out of it, and I could see no other route to take. But you move on, don’t you? You’re right, I stepped into a soap opera, and I lived in it for quite a long period of my life. I’ll probably be more eloquent on it 10 years from now. When you end up with a lot of the things you set out to chase and find that you’ve stumbled into all sorts of hollow victories, then you become deeply philosophical. I’m quite happy that that experience was accelerated for me. I’m glad I made money, in other words. And I’m glad I got married.”
– Guy Ritchie counts the blessings that his marriage to Madonna resulted in, namely his children (including biological son Rocco), and, duh, the boatloads of money he got paid when they divorced. As usual, Guy is just being his charmingly honest self. Remember when he said that making love to the Material Girl was like “cuddling a piece of gristle”? Oof. That was mean. [Details]
“Going to high school, I saw how popular girls had to behave to get the boys. I knew I couldn’t fit into that. So I decided to do the opposite. I refused to wear makeup, to have a hairstyle. I refused to shave. I had hairy armpits.”
– Madonna explains what she was like as a teenage girl before she became the international superstar she is today. I did not have to grow out my armpit hair in order to keep the boys away. My impressive array of acne did that! [Crushable]

Okay, not really, but she’s gripping the neck of Andrea Riseborough, the star of her new movie, “W.E.,” rather fiercely, wouldn’t you say? Inside, Madonna discusses making the film, about the life of Wallis Simpson, and how she’s faring as a single 50-something dating younger men. “Well, it can also be more than just sexual, um, appendages. I don’t necessarily like to use the word lover because it sounds like they just come over and have sex with you,” she said of the young French breakdancer she’s currently boning. “I aspire to more than that, and I need more than that.” Check out the subscriber-only cover after the jump!

Here at The Frisky, we love sluts. When did being in charge of your sexuality become a bad thing? The word first appeared in the English language in the early 1400s as “slutte,” with the meaning being a dirty or slovenly woman. Today, nothing about being a slut has to be off-putting, given the proper accoutrements (condoms, everybody, please!). In fact, having sex for pleasure can be an exercise in healthy living and sound mental health. Promiscuity, and the ability to separate sex and physicality from emotional dependency and attachment, is not something of which to be ashamed.
Let’s take some time to honor proud sluts throughout history!
Say what you will about Madonna and her high-maintenance (some might say “bitchy”) attitude towards gifts of flowers. But at least the woman has a sense of humor! Here’s a short film Madonna posted on YouTube today about her hatred of hydrangeas. Let it be known, peons, she prefers gifts of roses. [NYmag.com] Keep reading »
“Cooking is not in my DNA. My kids all cook really good. I could cook if you put a gun to my head, but after a long day at the office I want to come home and find my dinner on the table. Oh, my gosh, everyone prepares it, but me. Sometimes my daughter Lourdes likes to cook my food. They all help. I can boil an egg, scramble eggs, cook pasta, make coffee, whip up a round of sandwiches and — get this — concoct ‘Rice Krispie’ treats.”
– Madonna, explaining the limited extent of her cooking repertoire to the Daily Mail. It’s very hard to imagine Madonna making anything with marshmallows. [ONTD] Keep reading »
“She’s entitled to like any flower she wants and she didn’t want to hurt the feeling of the hydrangeas of the world. No disrespect to the hydrangeas lovers of the world but she prefers different types of flowers … It’s not like she said she hated warm chocolate chip cookies and milk and little puppies!”
—Madonna‘s publicist, Liz Rosenberg, defends the Material Girl in the Hydrangea Incident of 2011. Earlier this week, after a fan gifted her with a bouquet of hydrangeas, Madonna cooed, “I loaaaaaaathe hydrangeas.” Rosenberg says this is her prerogative. Though wait, does Madonna really hate puppies? Kidding. [Celebitchy] Keep reading »
